Our club has been invited to the following event on Thursday, July 27, at 6:30 pm at the NH Audubon Massabesic Center in Auburn, NH:
Gardens That Stimulate the Senses: Use Your Sense Of Smell, Touch, Taste, Sight, Even Sound
Are gardens just for looking at? Can a garden be enjoyed for its smell, or taste, or feel? What about the sound of a garden? A “Garden for the Senses” has features that make use of all five of our senses – smell, taste, hearing, sight, and touch.
Anyone interested in gardening for personal pleasure or for wildlife will enjoy this special summer event. There will be a lecture and garden walk on Thursday, July 27, at 6:30 pm at the NH Audubon Massabesic Center, 26 Audubon Way in Auburn, NH.
Gardens are under development at the NH Audubon Massabesic Center in Auburn that will stimulate the use of all of your senses. The project is under the direction of NH Audubon Volunteer, Martha Israel, who is herself visually impaired. After a career in engineering and continued study in landscape design, the disease that has impaired Martha’s vision has led her to a vision of a different kind – that of helping others enjoy the beauty and all the other senses that a garden brings out.
Come see the first garden installment – the Fragrance Garden – and learn of plans for additional Garden for the Senses plans. Walk the garden path and smell the plants chosen for their scent. A Sound Garden is under development.
The program is free and open to the public. Please register by calling 668-2045. Donations to the Garden for the Senses project are greatly appreciated. Donations can be made out to NH Audubon and mailed to the Massabesic Center at 26 Audubon Way in Auburn, NH 03032.
